"the five" starts right now. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> eric: complaining already. president obama's job plan, the stripped down $30 billion bill locked in the senate last night. this thing, remember obama said let's break it up so republicans can understand it. you might not understand the big thing but even the $35 billion failed. >> andrea: yeah. i don't think this is a surprise. they knew it would fail. republicans picked off three democrats that are worried about getting re-elected to block the bill. he can't say it's just republicans but this isn't about legislating there is a strategy on the right and mostly the left to
pass portion of the bill, particularly a tax on millionaires as a p.r. stunt to get republicans to vote against it and get biden to say if it doesn't get passed, women will get rapeed. >> kimberly: this is not working. they need a new trick. this rhetoric is old and tire tired. hysteria from biden. this is political. he knew he wouldn't get it passed in the entirety collectively. he had to cut it up in little pieces to see if he could push that through. >> bob: you know what i think about the jobs bill. let's move on to where it's going. you are right. the democrats that voted against it. tough re-election. that is one of the problems. but you also have a unified republican all-no vote that sets up the argument about the
republicans defending millionaires. now they have things that is harder for republicans to vote against. next week in the house, the question of the payroll tax cut. my guess is republicans will have a hard time turning that down because they hung their hat on tax cuts. >> andrea: i think -- >> eric: hold on. you think that the votes don't go partisanship? so you thought there would be republican -- >> bob: no. i'm repeating myself, i think the republicans, i think andrea had it right. this is now a gamemansship. >> eric: the story is ten democrats departments vote for it >> ericit >> bob: it was three. >> eric: seven? >> andrea: three democrats. >> bob: leaving that aside, the argument here is if you look at votes on both sides, overwhelmingly no were republicans. democrats before 90% of them that voted yes.
the division is clear. yes, class war fair and we want to take it to the councilmember. yes, we will win it. >> greg: well, there are so many bills it is beginning to look like my mailbox. am i right? time for a tortureed metaphor. ♪ ♪ if you are like me you had a yo-yo as a child and learned the infamous trick "walking dog." this jobs bill is like walking the dog. the trick is you take a yo-yo and roll it on the ground and it would come back in, just like the $35 payout which would go to the local government, state and local government workers who are unionized and then the dues would come back. >> there you go. >> greg: thank you. >> andrea: that was brilliant. >> bob: that was tortureed. it is. >> kimberly: accurate. >> bob: no, it's not. it probably makes eric's hair stand up. >> greg: am i right? >> eric: you are right.
so $478 billion is broken up to a bunch of bills. are any of them worthwhile? >> andrea: some are. the trade deals they did were worthwhile. things that obama had on his desk for a long time. he came out and announced the jobs bill and put in provisions that republicans could get behind, jobs for veterans, trade deals and as bob said, the payroll cut. this is something i think he will get republican support. tough to vote against it. but how does obama turn this in to a win >> eric: >> bob: he won't turn it in to a win. get tax credits. republicans will go with that. but one thing that is a reality. argue about mismanagement but because the bill was voted down there will be fewer cops, fewer firemen and fewer teachers. >> eric: i'm glad you brought that up. >> andrea: i'm glad, too. >> eric: see what biden said if the bill is voted down. listen to this. >> in flint, michigan, they cut the force in half. murder rates doubled in the last year.
>> police departments, as i said in some cases, will be cut in half like in new jersey. and flint, michigan. in many cities the result has been it's not unique, murder rates are up, robberies are up, rains are up. then he said the rates in flint, michigan, tripled. pull up the "washington post." fact checking on that. thank you for that. 2008. check out the rate numbers on the right. 103 lates in 2008 and 2009. down to 91. he is completely wrong. not only did rates not triple, it went down. >> kimberly: it's stimulus math. numbers like triple. times three. he's exaggerating. it doesn't do him any good or the party or the president. if you don't have the facts right and you make something like to make them frightened in the community.
rapists are everywhere trying to get him and it's the republicans fault? >> bob: not wrong about the murders. they cut flint michigan cops from 235 to 144 and murders went from 35 to 65. it's so, if that is the best you can do on the argument. by biden having the wrong city. wait a second. there is a direct relationship between the number of cops there are and the amount of crime there is. >> andrea: no, there is not. bost really? >> eric: then take the new york city police department to none. >> andrea: take new york city. $16 billion in stimulus dollars. rain has gone up. federal funding for new york city is all-time high and rates increase. how do you explain that? if democrats want a debate about crime and crime bill when clinton was in office, let's have the debate. but don't do it under the guise of trying to bail out the unions.
that is what happened in 2010. >> bob: get 1,000 cops out of new york city you think rapes would go down? >> andrea: harry reid in 2010 said if the jobs bill was intact men would beat their lives. >> eric: greg, whether or not the rains went up or down -- rapes went up or down it's demagoguery and fear mongers. >> greg: but the question is what about the $500 million to the solyndra rat hole? how many rapes and murders that could prevent? >> bob: as far as i know, no one was rapeed or murdered at solyndra. >> greg: it's a ridiculous comment. >> bob: talk about the tortureed whatever you call it. >> eric: metaphor. >> bob: how you can say that fewer cops don't lead to increase in crime. it defies -- >> greg: a lot of crime occurs between people know each other and it happens in the home. the amount of cops a lot of time can't affect that. by time they get there, the
crime is over. >> bob: the rapes went up in the city and if you took the police force out, do you think it would go down? >> eric: so when biden is trying to push a jobs bill, he should say things like if you don't pass the jobs bill, rapes will go up? >> bob: absolutely. because what you are doing is keeping police and firemen -- [ overtalk ] >> bob: if you want to be around and associated with a party that keeps teach them -- go ahead. shove it down your throat. >> eric: you are the first democrat to defend him. everyone else said he went too far. >> bob: they must be a bunch of chicken -- i didn't say it. >> andrea: but you have run enough campaigns to know they are trying to make republicans look like they don't care. >> bob: because they don't. >> kimberly: this is about 2012. hello. >> eric: i'm teasing this

there i think is a bad ad to run for romney. >> kimberly, there is a subtle message saying rick perry isn't as good as barack obama. >> kimberly: very odd. that was a terrible ad. i thought it was awful. i feel like i could make it on my computer upstairs. that's saying something! i don't think it's effective at all. it looked mean-spirited and pathetic. you are putting down republicans in a way, and not good. >> bob: i want -- go ahead. >> kimberly: i was going to say they're going to come back twice as strong on him. perry will come back on romney for that. >> greg: when i put it together, it was for my friends. >> kimberly: sorry. i stand by what i said. >> eric: i thought it was effective. i think, of the two, i'm more conservative so i like perry better. perry going in to the debates was winning. he was at 28, 29, 30% in some polls. now he is third at best. the debate. all he did. the debates, that's where he
lost the most ground. >> andrea: but what it was the best and strongest argument in a primary where the vulnerable thing about rick pervy the stance on immigration? >> bob: one thing they said about perry coming out of the last debate, he was mean-spirited and, you know, that was sort of a rap on him. romney is now being mean-spirited himself. this is after newt gingrich is out saying let us all come together. ronald reagan thing. let's not beat each other up. all they are doing is continuing the narrative. >> andrea: speaking of rick perry, look at the ad he has out counterpunching mitt romney. >> how do you ensure the 45 or 50 million americans that are not on the books? >> that is what we did in massachusetts. we put together an exchange. the president is copying that idea. i'm glad to hear that. >> i ask is this something you would have the whole nation do? >> would you apply it to the rest of the country? >> i would. >> and i said no. >> i made it clear. also in my book.

to coast this long on the massachusetts healthcare bill. this is his own words. >> andrea: effective, right? >> bob: very. one of the best ads i've seen all year. >> eric: when they had his book and showed the line in there and then it's gone, if that doesn't hit home. he has nowhere to go with it. >> bob: on the interview? through the interviewer's who were asking the questions? two of the great admired one, that has passed away. tim russert always seen as the guy to get down and figure out whether you were telling a lie or not. boom! >> andrea: he hasn't been challenged in the last debate, we saw him challenged. he hasn't had good answers; particularly, on healthcare. he can't run as a default candidate. he has been doing. this is the boyfriend that says i might cheat on you and might not be that good on you, but frankly, you're the best chance i got. >> greg: not bad. i was thinking of a
pay-per-view boxing match like with octomom and amy fisher. >> eric: perry dropped to third and fourth like everyone seemed to think. why is romney taking a shot at him? >> bob: he looks at the internal polls and knows that perry is second best. the best chance that cain has is to get heat off of him and go after romney. if i were herman cain that would be my strategy. >> andrea: best chance perry has to get cain out of the race. >> bob: yeah. what it's doing is forcing romney to play in iowa. if there is only one conservative candidate, romney can't duck it. >> andrea: coming up on "the five," new loan debacle heating up for the obama administration. yes, another one. for half a billion dollars. for something being made overseas? yes. stay with us. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ daddy, come in the water!

that is not with cancer. >> bob: no, not with cancer. more people ripped off by more different quacks as you pointed out. we have to make a distinction there is some legitimate alternative medicines that have been around for a long time. st. john's wort is proven help against depression. steve mcqueen, if you remember mcqueen, he had stomach cancer and went to mexico for series of treatments and it killed him this story about jobs is true, it's another indictment to allow the stuff be advertise, beginning with the fact you can stop them from advertising. if it's not truth in lending. it's not. >> eric: absolutely right. especially with cancer. especially with pan creatic cancer, a lot of history in our family. tumor can grow but if it moves outside organ, mess tas tetizeed and -- me tasty size and then you're done. >> bob: why didn't he take the operation?
>> kimberly: psychologically he had a hard time with the idea of cutting himself open. the way he felt from when he was younger, he wanted to be more spiritual healing. he regretted it later. to be honest, pancreatic cancer, one of the most aggressive, difficult cancers. >> bob: i can tell you about an alternative medicine treatment for alcoholism around ten years ago. a lot of people went to canada and spend $50,000 -- spent $50,000 if theydant want to go to a.a. i don't know a single one that stopped drinking. they spent money in the process. that's what this is about. money, is it not? >> greg: i want to move on because there is another part of the book, andrea, which jobs apparently was supposed to meet with president obama. he put it off until he was personally invited. then when he met obama he said you are going to be a first-term president. he railed about how the united states isn't as business friendly as china and how the
education system is in the craper? anyway. thoughts? >> andrea: well, hopefully steve jobs is right that he will be a one-term president. his wife, he says in the book was married to liberal and chairman of news corp. would come over for dinner and joke hide the knives, because she was so liberal. but i think he was very smart. what is shocking, though, someone so smart would be so short-sighted when it comes to treatment like this. of course, people have the right to do whatever they want with their body. it absolutely is. but you're right, they're not being honest about some of the herbal remedies and it's -- last summer it came out and everyone criticized -- >> bob: it would be a good idea for me to drop the jobs thing with obama. but let me say this. he said caustic things about obama. we talked about steve jobs here as one of the great innovative minds in several years. one thing he is not innovative mind about is politics. so frankly, i think that part of this, let's stick to the
ipad and the iphone. >> eric: that is the point. i'm trying to figure out the point. >> bob: what he is saying is it's easier to go to china. it is easier to go to china and american businesses are more than happy to go there and dump american jobs. >> eric: you didn't see steve jobs asking for $500 million stimulus from the tesla loan there was a time that apple was down to the lost few weeks. it will rally, they were -- literally, they were -- >> bob: has apple never had government loan? >> eric: i don't think so. >> kimberly: more friendly to businesses in the u.s. don't overregulate. what happens is we export the jobs out of this country. they put them in places like oh, finland, oh, china. that doesn't help us here. hi is right about that. >> bob: most major u.s. corporations have done that. they have been around a long time. dump u.s. jobs for cheap labor. that's why. >> greg: we have to move on. the new barbie doll has parents freaking out. i saw the barbie in bob's bag earlier today. i have toll you something --
